Thailand Krabi

Ko Lanta

Tips from the community

Loveable Lanta is a hidden gem of an isle that’s still not totally in the spotlight. While backpacking Southeast Asia, ride the ferry from the Phi Phis to the port at Ban Saladan and then jump on a shared jeepney down to Long Beach. The always-smiling folk at Joker Bar will welcome you with a cold Chang and games of Jenga. Just behind, a run of pristine sand dips into a sloshing Andaman Sea. A jaunt to Lanta Animal Welfare is another must; they’re always looking for travelers to help walk the pups! For the sunset, make for Secret Beach, which lurks down a palm-lined track that ends with a single pad thai noodle cook and a stunning cove.
